Rhubarb and Ginger Jam

Cooking time
Less than 30mins


  • 150g fresh rhubarb, thinly sliced
  • 1.5cm piece ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup white sugar


Place rhubarb, ginger and lemon juice in a medium microwave safe bowl. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and cook on high (100%) for 90 seconds. Stir, re-cover with plastic wrap and cook for a further 90 seconds, or until soft and pulpy.

Stir in sugar, cover and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir again and cook for a further minute. Cool until just warm and pour into a sterilised 250ml jar. Cover the jam with a small circle of baking paper and stand until cold. Once cold, seal the jar and store in a cool place.
